Discover Baroque

The Austrian taste for ceremony encouraged the blooming of the baroque style. This artistic school weighs down the palaces and official buildings with gilding and lining, to the delight of the visitors. Primitive baroque (which appeared in 1620) concerns religious architecture: it is more sober than the high baroque that succeeded it from 1680. One century later, the late baroque gradually permeated the French rococo. If you would like to discover all the subtleties of this grandiloquent art, do not hesitate to take the baroque route from Salzburg to Vienna.
